I don't know how to answer that, but the PM6 is chip compatable. It's one of the more common OBD0 ecu's to chip.

don't quote me on this but don't you have to desolder the existing chip on the board and solder in a socket in its place on a OB0

i may be wrong tho( and probly am )

mahcivic,

Take the top off of the ECU, and look at the A plug socket (It's the big green one). There is a sticker on top of that too. ...does it say PM7 instead of PM6?

Also, take the bottom cover off, and try to take a couple of the 9 screws out that hold the board to the case. If they break loose easy, someone swapped boards on you.

If the board has never been removed from the case, the glue will still be attached to the screws, and it will take a little effort to get them to break loose.
